The report forecasts the global thoracic surgery market to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the period 2016-2020.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Merger of PLC, motion control, and robotics application software will be a key trend for this market. As automation applications continue to grow, two distinct areas of industrial control systems namely robotics and motion are starting to merge deployments. Robotics is path dependent event-based application. Motion control is a scan-based velocity or positioning application. The user interface in robotics is teach-pendent centric, and motion control uses programming methods such as ladder and FBD. Vendors are increasingly finding ways to merge the two software architecture to provide a combined software solution to customers.
According to the report, need for quick response and consistent quality will be a major driver for this market. Most of the products in the beverage industry come in different flavors and variants. This provides an excellent opportunity for manufacturers to benefit from market potential. However, it also creates a challenge for them as they have to respond quickly to market demand and switch the manufacturing process from one product or flavor to another. This flexibility in operation is provided by the automation system as it allows manufacturers to change recipes quickly and easily.
Manufacturers are taking advantage of automation systems available in the market to maintain a consistently high product quality. Automation systems help operators to define their recipes precisely and control them easily and safely across all process steps. This ensures consistent product quality and the predefined parameters are strictly monitored.
